I recently had surgery to repair a fractured clavicle. I received a plate and 8 vertical screws. I have had serious nerve pain since the surgery, with numbness and burning on the skin near the incision, and sharp shooting pains in the shoulder that sometimes run down my arm into my elbow and wrist and sometimes up the side of my neck. The symptoms are least pronounced in the morning after I wake up, but as the day goes on, they intensify. It's nearly impossible for me to concentrate on my work. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who experienced similar issues but then had the problem resolve itself after some period of time.
